Change and Growth
Our Cemetery is a not-for-profit corporation with ownership by the plot holders. An elected and volunteer Board of Trustees provides oversight, sets policy, and is committed to maintaining and improving this very unique and historical site.
Along with expanded plantings to enhance the park-like setting, we are in the process of finishing the creation of cremation gardens that will have three dedicated areas for the scattering of ashes, in-ground urn placement, or individual family columbaria.
With its scenic view of the Shawangunk Mountains to the west, the cemetery is unique in providing solace to those paying respects to loved ones as well as for others who enjoy walking, jogging, or just as a place of respite.
An Ulster County Veterans Cemetery
A special section of New Paltz Cemetery has been designated for the interment of veterans, their spouses and dependent children. The Ulster County Legislature has agreed to purchase plots for veterans.
